Take the age-old truths of the Bible and present them through engaging messages, striking visuals, and great music. Moreover, we are authentic and passionate about presenting Christ in a way that is new and refreshing. The leaders of Faith Fellowship are intentional about creating an atmosphere that takes the stress out of going to church.  Whether you have never been to church, been away for a while, or have attended your entire life, Faith Fellowship feels immediately comfortable. From the moment you pull into the parking lot, we will make you feel at home. Parking volunteers will help you find a place, and they are available to assist you in getting inside if needed.

Faith Fellowship is barely into the second decade of living out our mission: to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Come and see why so many people are making Faith Fellowship a part of their lives.

You will experience worship at Faith Fellowship in a casual, intuitive, high-tech atmosphere with today’s culture in mind. The weekend service is creative, contemporary, and compelling with only one intent–to present the message of Jesus Christ in a way that is relevant and alive. The high-energy, cutting-edge worship, drama, and multimedia presentations highlight the worship experience. Pastor Dr. Daymond Talkington uses a no-holds-barred communication style in applying God’s Word to life’s complexities. This isn’t church as you have known it; it is energetic, captivating, and never boring.

The band is styled after the timeless rock and roll lineup, complete with electric and acoustic guitars, bass, drums, and keyboard. The sounds you hear on your favorite radio stations can also be heard at Faith Fellowship–rock, soul, jazz, and blues. The band rivals any in the area (Christian or secular).

If you have children, rest assured that they will be in the best possible care. All members of the Children’s Ministry Team undergo a criminal and civil background check to ensure complete safety. While parents are experiencing the creative, life-changing weekend service, children are participating in their own high-energy encounter in the new Kids Zone Building. They won’t want to go home!

  • New Year’s Revolution • Everyone Lay Down – 1/22/23

    The word “discipline” may resonate with you as either self-control or punishment. For many it’s an unpleasant word. But throughout history God’s people have accepted spiritual practices that are known as disciplines. These disciplines may come in the form of abstinence, saying “no” to things one should not do, and engagement, moving forward with things one should do. Hebrews 12:11 says that a harvest of righteousness and peace is the result for those who are trained through discipline. It isn’t pleasant at the time, but great gain is in store for those who exercise discipline.

    Scriptures – John 10:10; Galatians 5:19-21; 2 Timothy 4:3-4; Acts 20:32; Psalm 37:5; Hebrews 4:12

    Verse – The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. (Ga 5:19-21) Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. (Ps 37:5)

    Thought – You may need to say “no” to some places you’ve been going or some people you’ve been hanging out with. If your path isn’t taking you in the right direction, change it. You may need to say “no” to food, alcohol, prescription drugs, pornography. You may need to say “no” to unforgiveness, anger, worry, fear. Lay down your pride and surrender to Jesus Christ. With God’s power, you can get out of your rut. The things you need to say “no” to are personal to you. You know what things are dragging you down, holding you back and keeping you from experiencing the abundant life God offers. Now, what about things you need to say “go” to? You may need to set aside a place where you spend time with God each day—read your Bible, pray, talk with God. Participate in worship each week. Make time for Christians friends who encourage you on your journey and hold you accountable. A revolution will take place when you make seeking God and reading His word a priority. Scripture is truth, hope, encouragement, strength, and guidance. You cannot make consistent progress without filling your heart and mind with God’s word.

    Questions – What do you need to say “no” to? What do you need to say “go” to? What are your personal disciplines? What has helped you most. What is your greatest struggle regarding discipline? What practices are easy and don’t seem like disciplines anymore?

    Response – Find a quiet place and make a list of things you need to say “no” to. Be honest about what the Holy Spirit is saying. Date your list so you can be accountable for it. Also, make a list of things you need to move forward with, things you need to “go” with. Systematically begin to address what you need to do. Read God’s word every day. It will guide your path and strengthen you.

    Prayer – Dear Lord, thank you for the power that you provide through your word. I want all that you have for me. Keep my heart and mind on you and may your love live in and through me. In Jesus’ Name I pray, amen.
